Another (Cywgin required) solution:
  d.slide.show -v across=1 down=1

(general call for packagers)
It would sure be nice if someone produced a GRASS 6.2.1 Cygwin binary.
Currently the most up-to-date binary available for the Cygwin version
is 6.1-cvs April 17, 2006. i.e. there is still no stable GRASS 6.2
available for Windows users -- what's the problem? shared libs?
